Tiagong got people registered multiple accounts and cheated thousands of dollars from HPB through the ezlink top up reward. HPB really jialat, nobody do checking one.

This was one invasive app that asks for NRIC number, birth date, name, address, phone and etc. How to register multiple accounts without duplicates?

I was on that AIA 10k steps programme, wanted to take HPB concurrently, registered and realised I got to wear their tracker, so didn't take part.

“In its audit of the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY), the office found that supporting documents for claims contained signs that they could have been photocopies of one another, with alterations made to the dates and duration of services rendered.

At the Education and Home Affairs ministries, AGO said it came across instances where there were signs that supporting documents were created or even backdated to satisfy queries.

For the Housing Development Board, it was found that quotations for some items could have been created or altered to give the impression that they were obtained from other suppliers.


And at the People's Association, possible irregularities found include signs of falsification of quotations, alteration of hard copy payment supporting details and the creation and backdating of documents.”

Sounds like no major problem

I remember some uncles and aunties at void deck with their individual wrist full of HPB fitness bands and shaking non stop to clock mileage in order to earn points for vouchers.

I also saw people wearing the wrist tracker at the parks

I think the HPB programme is quite effective

At least people care

This is only a mole out of mountain. The excessive payment is to the redundant mayor and useless minister.

Did they shake their arms up and down in a pumping motion?

If not for Covid. I think HPB can issue those trackers out easily. Sounds unfair to pick on them.

every time AGO come out with their findings on some gov wastage of tax payers fund, but in the end never see report on those responsible got punished or not or how the respective ministry rectify the issue, mostly say they will be more vigilant and will implement more safeguards in the future. 🥱
No blame culture in action. :o

Many of the PA committee accounts score very low to even a F during audit. Many times the staff are not able to stop how the volunteers use the public funds because some volunteers are too powerful and do not need to answer to auditors. When it comes to doing work, many of these very powerful grassroot leaders usually do the least work.
Actually can stop one.

see whether the RC Chairman, Vice Chairman, CM, DCD and CD want or not.

They all take the tone from each other and if RC Chair want to play favourites or no leadership qualities or is those no balls don't want to say No or laize faire type; then members go and anyhow buy things, over-cater food during event so they ownself dabao home, funds and grants from PA into RC is always used exclusively and too focused on select-groups (usually rental blocks) instead of spending for the zone....

u get all these nonsense.
